I'm trying to play a video inline in the Canvas IOS app (Student). When I embed the following html code in the rich editor, html mode, and publish it, the video plays in line in the Canvas Web app. But, it will not play in line in the Canvas IOS app. It opens full screen in a native player within the Canvas IOS app. When I pink the video down to inline mode in the Canvas IOS app, non of the Youtube controls work on the video and the video image is frozen, while the audio still plays.

Please let me know how I can play the above embedded video in line within the Canvas IOS app.

Hi @kdolan1 ,
YouTube videos should embed inline with the iOS Student app. I have tested your code and see the following. Of course, I'm using iOS 11. I'm not 100% sure what you'll see on iOS 10.
As for YouTube embedding in iOS. The default behavior is not to show the YouTube controls (unless played in the YouTube app) and to show the default iOS video controls (with additional information from YouTube - for captions and such). I can't think of a way to show the YouTube video controls in iOS when embedding.
Now the real question is, why isn't your video playing?
I might also even suggest deleting the app, reinstalling, and trying again.
Let me know and we'll keep working to find a solution. Thanks.
